Kid's Summer Camp and sampler pix

 I had so much fun Wednesday helping these budding sewists make their first skirt! They had the choice of making the longer, straight version or the short sassy version.As you can see, they did a great job!

The three girls on the left (above) are friends and helped each other as they were sharing a pattern (wrong size purchased by two). Miss E (zigzag skirt) was visiting from California and her Grandma signed her up for the class.
 I forgot to ask if any of these were going to fair this year, but they would definitely wow the judges! It's always so much fun to see what fabrics they pick out.
 This cutie has taken kid's camps in the past...not sure if you can see the doggie faces on her skirt or not, but it's a cute print.
 These two sisters have taken classes before. It's always fun to see them.

That evening we had an extra class for the Sunbonnet Sue Sampler quilters...they worked on getting their borders finished. Two of the four were able to come. Diane H has one more border to go...she spent some time auditioning her fabrics for that first border. We liked how choosing the cornerstone fabric was going to change the look of the setting design. It's always so much fun to play with color, isn't it? I can't wait to see it finished!
 Marta is making two, one for her and one for a friend. She finished her friend's quilt that night. I am anxious to see her top finished too. She cut the borders for it, so it won't take her long to sew them on.
Jane has a good start on her center Posie for the Simply Posies Sampler 21 that began Monday night. She is making her four flowers all the same fabric.

I have to confess that I had didn't take any pictures during Tuesday night's To The Point Sampler class because they were so busy learning paper piecing techniques to make their block, that I just forgot. They will be meeting one more time for an extra class to learn how to set their blocks on point next month, so I will get some taken then.

I plan to start a new project today so hopefully I will have pictures to share soon! Are you sewing today?
